Experienced cannabis photographer, Jeff (creator of PotShots.Media), not only took some close ups of our Banana OG strain, but also tried it out! Jeff has taken thousands of photos of countless strains.
Specializing in macro cannabis photography, Jeff notices the tiniest of details. His gear allows him to look for the size and healthiness of trichomes to determine if the nug is well preserved and handled properly.
Here's his review:
"Holy bananas... this Indica dominant strain from Fade Co. is a flavorful punch with a calming mellow buzz from the slight bit of the CBGa & CBCa cannabinoids present."
"The smell of this strain is strong. Opening the jar I’m hit with a wave of creamy banana like I’ve never smelled before. Such a rich sweet odor straight off the buds. The jar is full of small but long, fluffy nugs just coated in trichomes. Being so fluffy they’re literally packed to the brim, and grinding just further opens up the smell adding some sweeter notes."
At 27.2% (now as high as 30%) Total Cannabinoids Banana OG is definitely Indica dominant and potent, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to immediately put you to sleep. It’s a very relaxing, soothing experience for both the mind and body, and this might have to do with the slight bit of CBGa and CBCa that showed up in the test results.
Cannabichromene (CBC) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that the scientific community is exploring in the likes of CBD and CBG for cancer, pain and inflammation, brain function, depression, and even acne. Studies have shown positive feedback regarding anti-inflammatory properties and restricting cancer cell growth."
Endocannabinoid receptors are found in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells throughout the body and researchers are only beginning to understand the true potentials of each cannabinoid molecule.
As someone who is currently dealing with chronic pain I’m enjoying the slight body relief provided, but since the heavy majority of cannabinoids in this are THCa, you should still expect a strong high."
